North Chattanooga Residence
We were asked to renovate a carefully maintained yet drab and dated ranch house for a long time client. The addition of a screen porch on the rear provided an opportunity for a cross gable which both enlightened and enlivened the façade. A similar gable was added to the front, along with a more carefully considered program of eave trim and interior and exterior colors. The garden house was conceived as a folly, representative of similar structures found at the verge of civilized lawns and genteel woodlands in this North Chattanooga neighborhood.
